Photographer's Note

Miravet's castle is considered to be the best example of Templar military architecture of Catalonia.

In Miravet's castle can observe remains of the Moslem work as well as contributions of the "taifa" and Almoravid period, and though it was thinking that most of the most significant construction was corresponding to the work of the Templars, excavations and actions realized by the Government of Catalonia indicate that most of the construction is Islamic, though later it was reformed by the Templars who, for example, lined with regular masonry the top enclosure or Sobir (sovereign).

The Templars did of Miravet's castle one magnificently and innovative castle- convent, of authentic crossed spirit, inspired probably by the Islamic ribats and the Syrian and Byzantine fortresses. Nevertheless, its height and work denote an evident influence of the Cistercian Proven蓷l style, rigorously, austerly and soberly according to the Sain Bernard's ideal ones.

This photo is taken on the face west of the castle, which was receiving the warm solar light of the summer late afternoon, and that was offering myself an interesting contrast with the clean blue sky.

I hope that you like.

El castillo de Miravet est considerado el mejor ejemplo de arquitectura militar templaria de Catalu鎙.

En el castillo de Miravet pueden observarse restos de la obra musulmana as como aportaciones del periodo taifa y almor墎ide, y aunque se consideraba que la mayor parte de la construcci鏮 m嫳 significativa correspond燰 a la obra de los Templarios, excavaciones y actuaciones realizadas por el Gobierno de Catalu鎙 indican que la mayor parte de la construcci鏮 es isl嫥ica, aunque despu廥 fuera reformada por los templarios que, por ejemplo, forraron con mamposter燰 regular el recinto superior o Sobir (soberano).

Los templarios hicieron del castillo de Miravet un magn璗ico e innovador castillo-convento, de aut幯tico esp甏itu cruzado, inspirados quiz嫳 en los ribats isl嫥icos y las fortalezas sirias y bizantinas. Sin embargo, su talla y obra denotan una evidente influencia del estilo cisterciense provenzal, riguroso, austero y sobrio segn los ideales de San Bernardo.

Esta foto est tomada sobre la cara oeste del castillo, que estaba recibiendo la c嫮ida luz solar del atardecer del verano, y que me ofrec燰 un interesante contraste con el limpio cielo azul.

Espero que os guste.
